Cavaliers 127, Hawks 94

How the game was won: Paul Millsap scored 16 points and grabbed seven rebounds, but Atlanta could not overcome a hot shooting night from the Cavaliers, as the Hawks’ four-game winning streak was snapped Saturday night at Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland.

Turning point: The Cavaliers started the second quarter on a 21-2 run and turned a 16-point lead into 35 points midway through the quarter. The Hawks, one of the NBA’s best 3-point shooting teams, shot only 11.1% (1-for-11) from beyond the arc in the first half.

Number: 11. Number of three-pointers made in a row to start the game, which lasted into the second quarter. LeBron James made three of those, and finished with 32 points to lead Cleveland.

Next: The Hawks return home Tuesday night to face the Los Angeles Lakers.
